Most events should occur between December 10, 2019, the 150th Anniversary of the Territorial Act in 1869 granting to women both suffrage and the right to hold office, and September 6, 2020, the anniversary of Louisa Swain’s first vote in Laramie in 1870. Approval of your proposal brings recognition as an official Celebration program and includes use of the official logo, and listing on the official website and calendar of events. There is no official start date for events, but the proposal process ends on August 1, 2020.
Please note that this is not a funding program. Developing, managing and financing your program is up to you.
PREPARING TO SUBMIT
You will need to assemble a title, dates and places (which can be given as TBA, “to be arranged”), along with contact information for a responsible person, a description of the project, a list of collaborators and any sponsors involved and how they will be acknowledged (which can also be TBA), and explanations of how your project fulfills the Suffrage Celebration objective, specifically the commemoration of the women’s vote (and women's right to hold office), and how your project will offer its results to the public for free.
Some projects of value and appeal may not satisfy these requirements. We encourage interested parties to pursue those projects even outside of this official recognition.
You can edit the submission later if you retain the URL that appears at the end.
